Glen Bartlett to Step Down



Recommended Posts


Can this puh-leeeease be a smooth as silk transition. The last thing we need is have board level instability sending the on field side of things down the ****ter.

I will say though that he will be leaving with the club in far better shape than when he arrived.

Oh for goodness sakes can we not have a seamless season that delivers us the ultimate? 
 

Whatever happens, kudos to you Glen you have delivered us the stability the club needed, you gave the footy dept the best resources they could afford and have allowed them to up the playing list in a position to succeed. If we do win it in the next few years, your finger prints are all over it.

I think overall his performance has been a good one and it’s a shame he’s not continuing as president. I hope it’s not a pushing and more stepping down due to personal circumstances, I know he was in Perth for personal reasons recently and perhaps he (and maybe others) felt it was stretching him. 

Whatever is happening just let it be a smooth transition with no egos getting in the way of the club.

See above mate. I don't know much detail, but was told about this earlier today and was hinted at that there's some kind of issue with Bartlett. If I had more info I could spill about that I would, but was told it's all a bit hush hush.

Pert is working with a few hopeful additions to the club for end of year, and Yze and Choco have been doing a ton of work inside the club on reviewing things.

As in admin personnel hopefuls or plans?

Do not like hearing this [censored] the night before a big game. It should've waited until Monday or after the game. Don't like the leaks either.

To Tom Morris as well....

See Caro article from circa a year ago

This has been stewing for 2 years or more

Finally, enough important Melbourne people have gotten sick of Non-Melbourne people running the show and it's time for Bartlett to go

It shouldn’t matter if they’re Melbourne people or not, as long as they’re the best person for the job. Remember the last time we had melbourne people running the show?

We need people who actually barrack for Melbourne to be president and in all the important positions. Always back self interest.

Good luck getting a team of 22 competent Melbourne supporters together to form a football team.

I find this an interesting perspective. I get that football has a tribal element but at the end of the day off field management and board roles are administrative and should be run by well trained, and highly efficient administrators.

Mark Williams isn’t a ‘Melbourne person’, and most on this board are absolutely frothing over him.

Also, most successful ‘Melbourne people’ would be in their 80’s, as we haven’t had success for 60 years.

Some of our most famous names from our glory period didn't start Melbourne people either. With success they became known as Melbourne people.

I think it's a nonsense argument for Melbourne only people in admin positions. You want the best person for the job FFS.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
